This 5K action camera at under $100 has to be too good to be true, right?

We've covered Pergear products before, including a budget lens. We also know that 'tis the season for action camera releases – GoPro and DJI have just released their latest models. What we were a bit surprised to see was a spec list that seemingly challenges those market leaders for a fraction of the price, yet here it is.

The Pergear site shows a 5K 50-megapixel action camera with 170-degree field of view, electronic image stabilization, wi-fi sharing, and dual displays, much like the DJI Osmo Action 4 or the GoPro Hero 11 and GoPro Hero 12 Black from our guide to the best action cameras. But this Pergear 5K ActionCam sells for $80/£67 - a fraction of the price of a leading GoPro or DJI model.
